Have you ever heard the saying, “There's no ‘I’ in team?”

It means that when we're trying to achieve a goal, it can be more effective when we work together – rather than going out on our own.

In today’s story, we’ll meet a bird who learns that lesson the hard way. As a result, he winds up with quite a tale… and tail!

Our story is called “The Clock Bird.” It comes from parts of Latin America, including Mexico and Costa Rica.

Voices in this episode include: Feodor Chin, Kevin Corbett, Anthony Palmini, Dawn Ursula, and Byron Mann. Grown-ups, you can see Byron Mann in the movie “The Big Short,” the TV series “Arrow,” as well as the new indie film, “The Modelizer.”

This episode was adapted for Circle Round by Rebecca Sheir. It was edited by Sofie Kodner. Original music and sound design is by Eric Shimelonis. Our artist is Sabina Hahn.
